Did you ever go someplace and think "this is it?" You won't have that experience at Blackberry Farm. One admission price buys you more activities than can be crammed into a day. They have train rides, hay rides, pony rides, petting zoo, carousel, fishing, museums, the list goes on. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You'll love your visit.

I took my kids to Blackberry Farm throughout their childhood and we have many happy memories. In recent years they've done much to improve the children's playland and kept all the historical buildings we remember. Don't forget that they have special weekends in the fall and near Christmas!

Blackberry Farm Village (a part of the Fox Valley Park District) is a great way to spend a summer day, with pony rides, an old fashioned carousel, paddle boat rides, a train ride, hay ride, and a chance to see a bit of what life was like in pioneer times, and around the turn of the 20th century. If your... More

I absolutely loved Blackberry Farm. I highly recommend it for anyone with young kids.! We were there today (a Friday in September) and there were no crowds at all. My son loved touring the log cabins, pottery house, schoolhouse, and the blacksmith shop! The demonstrations were age appropriate, interactive and fun! Everyone working there was friendly and fun. The crooked... More

My family and I enjoyed an afternoon here. My two youngest enjoyed the pony rides. The carousel was broken most of the day, when it was finally fixed, crowds overwhelmed it making it nearly impossible to enjoy. The grounds are beautiful but the employees are not very enthusiast, the teenage employees seemed bored and not approachable. The guy working on... More

This pioneer village has a small train and carousel to ride, as well as ponies. Then there is a schoolhouse, blacksmith, and potter that kids can check out and interact with. Property has a small home that one can tour to see how people lived in the 1800's, and there are a few animals to pet as well. Be sure... More

Its been here for a long time and you will love it. Mainly for younger children. I dont think I would take teenagers there without some small children. There is a water park nearby for the teenagers.

We have come here on multiple occasions, this time however, the carousel attendant who is named Nancy was quite a beast!! Never, have I experienced rudeness like her! She hollered at my 10 year old daughter and screamed to her, " can you read!!??"... I spoke with the manager Cori, who was delightful and sincerely apologetic. Besides the basketcase Nancy,... More

Took a trip to Blackberry farm with my school age niece and my mother, who is a senior. The park was clean, well run, and priced well within our budget. My niece said she had the best time ever, and this is a Disney savvy kid. She enjoyed the hay ride, train ride, merry go round, and fell in love... More

Great place to take younger kids to, we enjoyed every bit of our time here. We spent more time at the play ground. We rode the train, but would have liked to have more time to ride the paddle boat. The kids were amazed by the old time way of living and the amount of work the blacksmith had to... More
